Mark Bryan did an absolutely AMAZING job with my wedding!! Everything from the bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, centerpieces, boutineers, and chuppah were beautiful! His color choices and combinations are so creative and tasteful. I did not know a lot about what type of flowers and combinations would work well together and he knew exactly what to put together to make everything look so stunning and beautiful!! It was just what we wanted and more. He was such a pleasure to work with and very easy to get in touch with via phone and e-mail for any questions, concerns, or feedback needed. Awesome job and thank you SO much!!

When looking for a florist for our daughter's wedding, I had a somewhat limited budget. I contacted Mark Bryan and he was so gracious and accommodating and insisted we could make it work within our budget. All of our contacts during the planning process were pleasant and reassuring. NEVER in my wildest dreams did we think that what he created would ever be possible. The centerpieces and bouquets were so outstanding. The use of colors and textures combined with amazing creativity and an outstanding eye were extraordinary. Everyone was raving about the flowers all evening and most importantly, our daughter was thrilled! There are florists and then there are artists and Mark is superior. I cannot recommend Mark Bryan Designs highly enough.

Last saturday I got married for the second time. My now husband has three boys and I have three girls...we heard the words "Brady Bunch" a lot. Planning a wedding is a big job, and in our case it wasn't just a wedding that we had to prepare for. It was the merging of two families, various pets, moving things from three houses and a barn, fixing up two and selling one, flooded basements, switching schools- the list goes on but my point is that wedding logistics on their own can be stressful enough without any other challenges, and we were mentally drained. When I first met Mark, a sense of calm just swept over me. I have always loved design and thrived on coordinating colors and textures- in fact I am not ashamed to say that I am very particular. However, when it came to the floral arrangement aspect of our wedding, I needed to not think any more and "toss it up" so to speak. I truly believe that Mark was not only the right choice, but the only choice. As I looked around his shop, I not only saw samples of what he was working on, but could see the passion with which he was doing it. He connected with each piece. All I did was show him one of my daughters dresses and say I wanted things to blend well. For one of the first times in my life, I felt comfortable letting someone else be in control and take the reigns on an important decision on an important day. And in the end, his floral vision and subsequent execution of our wedding was perfect! I wouldn't highly recommend Mark Bryan Designs, I would only recommend him.

Where do I even begin? I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Mark Bryan. Mark made my floral vision come to life down to the very last detail for my wedding. From the moment we first met, Mark put in so much effort to understand what we were looking for and trying to achieve in our flowers for our wedding. We went to Mark with a very specific idea of what we wanted our florals to look like, and he executed it better than I could have ever imagined. Throughout the planning process, Mark was always available to answer any questions and offered really helpful insight (which was especially helpful given my lack of flower knowledge!). Mark was an absolute pleasure to work with and we knew from our very first meeting that he was the one! It was so comforting to know I did not have to worry once about my flowers not being right - I trusted Mark completely. On the big day, the flowers were even more incredible than I could have imagined. All the flowers from the bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces and church flowers were simply perfect. Mark did a sensational job and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a florist. You will not be disappointed! Thank you so much, Mark for helping to make my day more than perfect!

Artist,visionary, designer, professional. Words that easily come to mind when talking about Mark
Bryan. His ability to bring to life my daughters dream was a delightful and an easy process with Mark. After one brief meeting he had our vision and executed it beyond our expectations. Mark was a delight to work with and the process was easy and stress free. No need for countless meetings, or endless phone calls. He work in concert with us on the colors and types of flowers and although my daughter was not accomplished in the various varieties of flowers he knew what look we wanted. Walking into the room for the first look took my breath away. The coach lanterns were perfect and the artistic loose arrangement was fabulous. Mark arrived personally the morning of the wedding with the stunning bouquets for our bridal party of 7. He posted pictures of the bouquets for the bride to see before the day of the wedding. She and I were overcome with excitement and they were even more beautiful in person. I have planned numerous parties and worked with other florists but none could compare to artistry of Mark Bryan. He executed every detail beautifully from the arrangement on the chic shutters which uniquely displayed our seating cards to rustic arrangements for our cocktail tables. He was a drought to work with in every way. The almost 200 guests raved about the flowers and the girls bouquets. I can't wait to work with him again for my sons wedding. It is difficult to put into words how exceptional Marks designs were. The flowers personified our theme and set the tone perfectly. If you are lucky to work with Mark I assure you , you won't be disappointed and your flowers will be perfect for Your look. There is nothing cookie cutter about this floral designer. Thank you Mark for executing our dream so beautifully. I wish we could do it all again.

Mark is not only an amazingly talented florist, but is someone who really listens to you. As I am sure most of the soon-to-be brides or event coordinators reading this review can relate to, my first meeting with Mark involved about 30+ floral ideas that were on my "Wedding Day Flowers!" pinterest board-:) I knew Mark was going to be the one to decorate our venue with beautiful flowers when we was equally excited about all my floral ideas as I was! Mark helped me coordinate the color scheme in our venue at The Lake House Inn, from the table cloth colors, to the napkins, to the lighting and the seat cushion colors - he was the best! Even when the flowers started to arrive at this shop a fews days before the wedding he texted me pictures of how beautiful the white and blush peonies, coffee colored roses, etc were - which made me that much more excited! Mark is truly an artist who's visions come alive on our big day! I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience, I high recommend Mark Bryan Deigns for any type of event!!!!!!

Our flowers were breathtaking! My only comment is Mark is very hands on and likes LOTS of feedback. So my cake flower ball was not what I had exactly envisioned. Had I gone and talked to Mark I know I would of gotten what I wanted. He isn't a mind reader so that was 100% my fault. The flower cake ball was still beautiful and exceptional and high quality and everyone else loved it, including me, so I can't complain. (Just a tip so if you are very specific in your wants you should probably go and see him at the shop a few times or have him make you a mock-up piece) He went above and beyond to make our wedding beautiful and helped every step of the way (hard find when looking for a vendor) EVERYTHING else about our wedding was exactly what we had wanted to the letter. People were in awe of the flowers. I have even dried my bouquet so I could keep it longer! Still beautiful. I have given my information to one of my bridesmaids who absolutely adored everything about our flowers, and wants to use Mark for her wedding. They were all very accommodating. Everything was beautiful and set up by the time we got there and they removed everything! I would recommend Mark Bryan again to anyone

I would strongly recommend working with Mark Bryan for your wedding!! I wanted an elegant and classic winter wonderland feel to our December 14, 2013 wedding at HollyHedge without screaming Christmas. I definitely had a vision on what I wanted. I gave Mark some pictures and ideas for my flowers and decor and he went above and beyond to making it amazing.

I absolutely LOVED everything Mark designed and created. My bouquet was so stunning, the bridesmaids' flowers were so lovely to look at, and the decor on the tables looked magical (we chose Mark's white trees with tea lights hanging from the branches and black lanterns in wooden boxes with an assortment of greens and reds). Everyone was complimenting on how beautiful everything looked. I can't tell you how happy I was with his amazing talent.

Mark is passionate about all the little details, loves what he does, and works very hard to make your day exactly how you've always pictured it. Thank you Mark for being a part of our special day!!

Mark is spectacular. When searching for a florist, I was looking for someone special. I needed a creative florist who wasn't afraid to take risks and step outside the box. I wanted someone gifted in his/her field -- but also someone with whom I would work well. A Type A personality, I'm used to calling the shots in my job -- and I wanted someone who was not afraid to throw around ideas with me, tell me when I was wrong, work with me when I was right, and -- collectively -- come to a creative conclusion. Mark was perfect. Strong-willed and strong-minded, he very much knows his own craft, but he also knows how to be a team player when required. I found him to be opinionated but open-minded, willing to jump in with both feet, structured but flexible, and, more importantly, a true professional. I knew the minute I met him that I would not have to shadow him. He keeps tight reigns on every job he accepts, which gave me the personal freedom to loosen my reigns because I knew Mark would handle things and that everything would be beautiful. Because of this collective trust, I was able to relax on my wedding day (and the days leading up to it) as I knew Mark would be in control so I did not have to be. As expected, everything went smoothly, and my flowers were not only beautiful, but sent exactly the message I wanted to send. He interpreted my dreams, turned them into a tangible reality, and added his own signature flourish to everything. Beautiful work.

Mark did such an amazing job! During our initial meeting he understood exactly what I was looking for though I was less than clear. With a January wedding I wanted "wintery" without looking like the holidays. Somehow Mark was able to decipher my thoughts and found both the words and a few sample flowers to articulate the look I was going for. He also made suggestions for things I hadn't even considered, all which lead to a great finished product.

But most importantly on the actual wedding day, as I walked into the reception room with my husband for the first time it looked just like I had pictured it in my mind! The colors, the flowers, the feel of the room were all just perfect! I couldn't have been more pleased.

Our wedding was at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC, and I knew that I wanted Mark Bryan to do my flowers, no questions asked. I'm from NC originally but we currently live in PA, and have been inspired by Mark Bryan Designs so we thought we'd give it a shot to ask him to be our wedding florist. When he said yes, I knew my wedding day would be complete and nothing less than perfect - Not only because of Mark Bryan's reputation and business acumen in the floral design industry but because of who he is a person and a beautiful artist.

After our initial meeting of coming up with a vision for the wedding day from the centerpieces through the alter design, I knew that I wouldn't have to think about the flowers anymore and I could let Mark do what he does best...create and inspire! He did just that! His experience, attention to detail, and most of all his passion are why we choose to work with Mark and why our wedding day designs by Mark are STILL being complimented!

How well you complemented the Grove Park Inn! Everyone thought you were their floral designer!

Thanks Mark for being part of our special day! We couldn't have asked for anything to be more perfect!

Mark is so dedicated to his work! It's so obvious from the moment that you meet him that he loves what he does and is truly a visionary. We met with one other florist before Mark - she was a bit more traditional. She wanted to pick 1-2 types of flowers and use them everywhere. Then we met Mark. He gets the essence of what you want and takes it to a whole new level. Everything looked fantastic, but never stiff. He had so many ideas that I had never seen before. The finished product was so unique and we were thrilled. It's important to have your own vision and budget because you will get wrapped into the vision he describes and may get carried away...but it's worth it!

Mark is a true artist. I don't feel as though I can say that about many vendors -- sure, a wedding dress or cake may be "gorgeous" and "beautiful," but Mark elevates his work beyond that.

My (now) husband and I found Mark after collecting pictures of floral arrangements we liked and realizing that Mark was the florist behind about 90% of those arrangements. From our initial phone call through the Big Day itself, Mark was always accommodating, available, and eager to brainstorm how to make our day absolutely perfect. Although we knew the sort of style and some of the colors we wanted, we gave Mark free reign to use his imagination and come up with creative floral arrangements.

The result was spectacular. The flowers were fresh and vibrant, and ultimately transformed the entire venue into something out of a fairytale. Everyone I spoke with at the wedding commented on the stunning arrangements, and a few guests tried to sneak away with centerpieces before the end of the night.

I would 100% recommend Mark to any future bride. As a tip, I would recommend that you give him a few themes, ideas, and preferences, and then let him run with it. The surprise and delight of seeing his beautiful creations on the morning of your wedding will make the day that much more special.

Thanks so much to Mark for absolutely nailing the look and feel I wanted for my wedding. He was kind enough to set aside time during a busy day at his (beautiful) workspace to sit down with me and discuss my options, always providing stellar input within my price range. On the days leading up to the wedding, Mark was in constant contact, letting me know that my flowers were in and looking beautiful. He even accommodated a last minute request made by my father-in-law, always keeping me in the loop. A true professional. I am not too knowledgable about flowers, but I was so lucky to have Mark execute my vision perfectly and keep me at ease throughout the process. :)

I would highly recommend working with Mark Bryan. He is extremely talented and a pleasure to work with, which is just as important. He took the time to meet with me and my fiance/me and my mom on two separate occasions to review all of my inspiration photos and discuss my requests. He is very knowledgeable and was honest and upfront about certain flowers that might not be in season on my wedding date (September 1st) so that there were no surprises and we could discuss alternative options. The week of my wedding, Mark called me to excitedly let me know how beautiful the arrangements were coming along (which I appreciated) and on the day of the wedding, I was blown away by the final product. He transformed the outdoor courtyard at HollyHedge and did three different types of centerpieces in the reception barn with rustic-looking yet chic designs (whites/creams with succulents, brunia berries, scabiosa pods, etc.). Thanks again, Mark!

I was looking for a shabby chic, rustic feel to our wedding at HollyHedge Estate. Mark Bryan exceeded our expectations! He has such a vision and created an awesome atmosphere with his florals. Mark used chandeliers and hung them from the trees. He put lanterns throughout the barn and courtyard where we got married. Inside the stone barn, Mark used ferns and candles. It was perfect! Mark was very professional and easy to work with. I am thrilled we chose Mark to create our wedding decor/floral arrangements. He did an awesome job! If you are looking for a florist with an eye for detail, look no further! Thanks Mark!!

Mark is extremely creative and an absolute pleasure to work with. I had a specific vision for my wedding flowers and decor, but was open to his creative lead. I wanted to stay away from current trends and have my flowers to instead be unique and different. My wedding bouquets and arrangements were the first of the kind that Mark had created. The week of the wedding, Mark called to inform me that all of my flowers had arrived. He even sent me pictures the week of so I could see how the vision was evolving. He took wonderful care of me and amazed me with the gorgeous, flawless end product. I received so many compliments from guests.

Mark is also very sensitive to budgets. He does not charge for vases, which many vendors do. I really appreciated this business practice of Mark's. He is also big on "perceived value". No matter what your budget is, Mark will make sure you LOVE your flowers.

We had Mark as our florist for our wedding at HollyHedge Estate this past weekend and it was absolutely stunning. He knows the place inside and out and that's a huge plus. Originally I was really hesitate about spending so much on flowers since he's not cheap, though he is happy to try to work things into whatever your budget is, but let me tell you - he was worth every single penny and then some.

We met with Mark a few times leading up to our wedding. A few months before our wedding we saw something we liked and decided to change the centerpieces almost entirely. I was worried he would not be able to do it with such short notice, but he was all for it, was able to keep it at the price we had before and it turned out amazing. Leading up our wedding, he called when the flowers got in just to ease my mind and went over #s again just to make sure everything was right. The day of our wedding, everything was set up when we arrived 5 hours before our ceremony. I literally teared up when I saw how beautiful our ceremony area was when I saw it. In addition to the ceremony area, my bouquet was stunning and everyone (including the photographers and all the staff at HollyHedge) commented on it. I am not the best with describing the vision I have in my mind and didn't really have a whole lot of ideas about what I wanted except for my centerpieces (the ones we changed), but I tried what I could and just gave him creative license to do what he felt was best. He took what I told him and ran with it, incorporating the colors of our wedding and made everything absolutely beautiful - it was beyond anything I could have imagined.

Mark is truly an artist with flowers and also a joy to work with. Having him do your flowers could easily be one of the best decisions you make. I promise you won't regret it!

I received a lot of positive feedback about our wedding, but one of the top compliments from my guests was on the flowers. You can tell Mark really enjoys what he does.

For those of you getting married at HollyHedge, Mark has a fire ring for the outside fountain. If you can budget it, I definitely recommend it! It was a perfect addition.

I definitely recommend Mark Bryan Designs, and if you give him creative license, you won't be disappointed!

Mark was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding, and I highly recommend him for anyone looking to plan any event. The designs and detail Mark created for our wedding were not only flawless and beautiful, but so subtly elegant and spot on with our taste that guests are still talking about them and will be for a very long time. My husband and I didn’t want a “check the box” kind of thing when it came to flowers. Mark took the time up front to get to know our taste and style before we even signed on board and created an experience for us, rather than just flowers. He is passionate and effortlessly talented, but most of all, very kind, which is key when you are entering a realm you are not familiar with and when last-minute planning stress creeps in. We trusted Mark’s expertise, and he really exceeded our expectations. I am thrilled we got it right with Mark. Good luck with your planning.

What an artist! We were not sure what we wanted but knew we wanted a rustic fall them and very natural. We met with Mark almost one year before our wedding and he spend over two hours with us during our initial meeting. We left our meeting with a plan and estimate for what we wanted and we were certain we would be using Mark especially because of his attention to detail. Everything Mark said he would do was even better than he said and better than he described for the wedding. Mark kept us updated as he prepared for our wedding. When the day for the wedding came, we could not believe how stunning the bouquets were when he dropped them off to the bridal suite…they were breathtaking. All of the displays he put together and set up were just as stunning as the bouquets and he even made a flower collar for our dog. Marks passion for what he does truly shows through his work and his personality and it was an absolute pleasure to work with him.

All I can say is "wow"! When I first met with Mark and told him that I wanted my wedding flowers to be stunning, unique, breathtaking, and have a lot of sparkle, I never dreamed that he would be able to take my vague and scattered ideas and turn them into works of art that have exceeded my every expectation. Mark is truely a creative floral genius who isn't afraid to think outside the box to accommodate even the most discerning and indecisive bride (which I was). He and his team went above and beyond the realm of flowers to create a beautiful ceremony space, breathtaking tablescapes, and incredible bouquets. He accounted for every detail down to the color and fabric of my linens to make sure that everything coordinated perfectly. For something unique, I carried a bouquet of crystal brooches with hydrangea and mini cala lillies. I cannot even begin to tell you how many compliments I received about the flowers all night long. I really could go on and on about how amazing Mark and his team are but to summarize, if you're looking for a florist who is creative, passionate about his craft, patient, detailed, and just all together fabulous, go to Mark Bryan Designs. It will be one of the best decisions you could make for your wedding.
P.S. If you choose Mark and would like to talk to me personally about my experience, my name is Jenn and I was married on 8/19/12. Mark has my number and I would be more than happy to be used as a reference to any future brides.

I really could go on and on about how amazing Mark and his team are but to summarize, if you're looking for a florist who is creative, passionate about his craft, patient, detailed, and just all together fabulous, go to Mark Bryan Designs. It will be one of the best decisions you could make for your wedding.
P.S. If you choose Mark and would like to talk to me personally about my experience, my name is Jenn and I was married on 8/19/12. Mark has my number and I would be more than happy to be used as a reference to any future brides. Read less

Mark was an absolute pleasure to work with, he gave me all of his design & floral ideas. I trusted his ideas, and let him do what he does best. I'm so glad we went with Mark, our flowers were beyond gorgeous & our entire decor for the day was just beautiful! On the day of I didn't have my bouquet charms, Mark traveled back to attach them onto my bouquet personally, he was there within 10 mins! Perfect service, great quality I can't recommend Mark highly enough! Thanks for making our day so beautiful Mark!!

Mark Bryan is certainly passionate about what he does! He has a wonderful eye and love for flowers and wedding decor. Walking in to our first consultation I knew not a thing about flowers, and yet as I described my wedding day vision to him he knew exactly how to create it! He is super helpful and suggested a lot of really great ideas that I never would have thought of, and yet he always made certain he was following my vision for the big day! When the flowers showed up on our wedding day they were exactly as I had wanted them to be and more. I was amazed my the beauty of the arrangements and bouquets that were created! I would absolutely recommend his services to any bride!

Mark was a delight the first time we met him. Full of idea's and suggestions, and completely open & flexible with making the most of your budget. We only had a very basic idea of color scheme and decor. The choices & possibilities were initially overwhelming, but Mark really guided us through everything, and made great suggestions from the outset. He knew our venue very well, and had some great suggestions based on experience. We ultimately trusted him completely, allowing him to guide us, and could not have been happier with the results. He was always on top of his game, thoroughly professional in his dealings with us, and put us completely at ease. We were still getting compliments on his displays for weeks after the wedding.

*Note: This is the house formerly known as Hairy Mary’s just for clarification. Mark Bryan has rebranded and relaunched his business as “Mark Bryan Designs.”

We first discovered Mark’s work after visiting Holly Hedge and researching all of the places on their ‘recommended vendors sheet.’ We knew we were looking for something totally nontraditional and stylized. After selecting three to visit in person - a smart move in general to pick three vendors in every category and meet with them - we set about our initial consults. After two rather disappointing meetings with other florists who just lacked that creative spark we were looking for, we made the trek out to scenic Upper Black Eddy to sit down with Mark and his beyond-amazing design partner, Darlene. I swear I am not making this up: I knew when we pulled into the driveway that this was meant to be. The place screamed "artistic" and the fact that Mark lives next door to the shop in a 1930s Craftsman (my favorite) was just too kismet. It was almost like stepping into an enchanted village or something. Take a drive there and you’ll see what I mean because Mark isn’t just a florist: he’s a true designer. If you want just a hand-tied bouquet and some low centerpieces, Mark’s talents will be totally wasted but he’ll do a good job. If you are looking for the truly spectacular, that is why you hire Mark Bryan to do your wedding. He has props, he has lighting, he has unique accents that no one else is going to have. He is a true connoisseur of the total design of an event and has a definite vision.

Mark oozes charm and creativity and he is an extremely good read of people. He knew exactly what I was looking for and how frustrated I was with my previous florist experiences. I was looking for something with a WOW factor that no one has ever seen before, yet something that would blend with the entire experience. I wanted our wedding design to evoke the 1930s and Mark totally delivered. He immediately got my vision for the champagne bucket centerpieces - art deco, whimsical yet crisp and elegant - and he countered with a concept for a second idea: antique 1930's trumpet vases with callas and peacock feathers as well as sprays of silver to keep that slightly avant garde feel. We wound up doing both. It was definitely a marriage of two outside-the-box thinkers and the fact that Mark knew how to communicate with us and carry out our vision for the day was all we needed to know. I was sold!

We booked Mark Bryan to do the ceremony decor (he is a Holly Hedge house designer so this worked out quite well), as well as the reception flowers. I am not a flower lover by any means and for that reason, decided not to do traditional bouquets or boutonnieres or corsages of any kind. (My aunt made exquisite peacock feather bouquets for us instead.) Mark had the whole scheme mapped out and would check in with me frequently and make himself available to answer any questions that came up. Because he is so in demand, his schedule can be a bit challenging, especially if you're from out of town like us so we had to make an effort to visit in person. It worked out that we only went for the initial meeting and the final consult and that was enough. I trusted Mark and Darlene implicitly and they blew us away with their final designs. Darlene created an exquisite niche piece that served as the backdrop to our ceremony in the stone barn and I wish that it had been fake so we could have kept it forever, it was that beautiful. Mark set up atmospheric coach lanterns in every nook and cranny of the barn, as well as the courtyard and lined the walkway down to the reception barn so that Holly Hedge really was transformed into some Gatsby-esque estate soiree.

I could not have asked for a more perfect melding of design concept, materials, and creative synergy to fully realize my Art Deco vision. Mark Bryan Designs is worth every penny.

My husband and I were recently married and contracted with Mark Bryan for our florals. The flowers turned out better then anticipated. They were so beautiful, and Mark and his staff were a pleasure to work with. Given that we do not live in New Hope, Mark was extra flexible, and good communication was kept over the entire planning process. My husband is a green-thumb, and this was the portion of the wedding that he was super involved in. We were both so excited to see how the florals would turn out, and were over joyed when we saw them. Thank you Mark and Darlene for making our day (and our flowers) so special and beautiful!

I can't say enough good things about Mark Bryan and Darlene at Hairy Mary's/ Mark Bryan Designs! I am the kind of person who likes to be really involved in every aspect of planning my daughter's wedding, and they were totally willing to take my ideas and make them a beautiful reality. They worked with silver pieces I collected for the centerpieces as well as garden elements that I wanted to incorporate from my own home. Make no mistake, they are truly artists, but they allowed me to start them off with a seed of an idea, and made the wedding so perfectly beautiful it brought tears to my eyes! They even changed the plan at the last minute when I changed my mind about some pretty major details, without any grumpiness. Their main concern was always that we would really love the end result and we totally did. This shop may be a bit pricey, but for flower arrangements that are not just - run-of-the mill, Hairy Mary's was completely worth the price. They were absolutely the icing on the cake. They made everything just right! And for that, i will always be grateful.

Praise for Mark Bryan and Darlene! Our wedding was beautiful and they truly nailed the feel and atmosphere that we'd hoped to achieve. The ceremony was outdoors, which provided some challenges as to what to do for an arrangement (we wanted it entirely natural, with no columns or pedestals). Mark designed a birch branch arrangement that simply blew me away. He also has the creative mindset that will help make your event truly unique. He provided dozens of lanterns as not only part of the centerpieces, but also the ceremony and lining the walkways. They created a warm, glowing atmosphere. The flowers were phenomenal, and so many guests commented on them.

I must also personally thank Mark and Darlene for going above and beyond for us. My husband and I are both very left-brained (analytical, logical, etc). Therefore we should never go into the florist business! Mark and Darlene brought the right-brained strokes of creativity to our floral arrangements. Sometimes it was difficult for me to see the big picture or put my desires into words, but they did a fantastic job interpreting the atmosphere we were seeking and making it happen.

Kudos to Mark and Darlene at Hairy Mary's! If you work with them, you'll not be disappointed!

I was working with a strict budget on flowers, but I really didn't want to sacrifice quality. Hairy Mary's created amazing bouquets for me and my bridesmaids as well as truly unique boutonnieres for the groomsmen and elegant arrangements for the reception venue. The flowers, like the mango calla lilies for my bridesmaids, were unlike any I had ever seen. I also have to echo that Mark really does go above and beyond for his clients. When my cake arrived at the venue, it was undecorated (to save on cost, I was planning on having a friend put the floral decorations on). Mark was there when the cake arrived and used extra flowers from the arrangements to decorate my cake (at no charge). The cake looked absolutely amazing and it was such a wonderful surprise. I couldn't have been happier with Hairy Mary's and I definitely recommend them for your wedding.

He was honest and incorporated all the colors and elements we wanted. He even went above and beyond and ordered crates of grapes like 2 weeks before the big day when we decided it was a great touch in the centerpieces. Would 100% recommend Hairy Mary's!

My husband and I had a tight budget with our wedding, yet I knew flowers would be important to me. Mark was able to create the most stunning reception room and flowers for the bridal party, completely exceeding my expectations! As a designer myself, I can be bossy at times, but Mark is so easy to work with and understood the vision for my wedding right from the start. The flowers were so fresh and beautiful. None of them wilted for at least a week after the wedding. My bouquet looked fake it was so pretty. He brought huge urns with flowers from my church to the reception, no questions asked..because I wanted them in both places! I highly suggest a consultation with Mark if you are able to, it is well worth your time and money.

Mark and his staff at Hairy Mary's is amazing!! I went in there with a picture of my gown and the bridesmaids gown and let him do the work. However, if I had any questions or really wanted something he was more then happy to do it. He is very easy going and wonderful at what he does. The flowers were even more amazing then I could have imagined! They practically looked fake, they were in such perfect condition! We received tons of compliments on the flowers and the lanterns that he provided. Thanks for everything!!!

Hairy Mary's was wonderful!!! I think one of my favorite parts of the wedding were the flowers and other decorations they provided (candles, paper lanterns, etc.) I loved the colors and they looked great with the dresses. We received so many compliments on the fountain piece and centerpieces. One of my childhood friends said to us that it was the most elegant and classy weddings he has ever been too.

I left everything to Mark and his great staff. All I did was show them a sample of the colors I wanted and they did the rest. The types of flowers they picked were awesome. I believe my guests took the centerpieces home. I only wish I could keep all the flowers forever. I can't talk about the mixture enough - blues, purples, white, dark pink, greens. I highly recommend Hairy Mary's. They were very responsive and they even through in some extras the day of the wedding.
I had no worries when it came to my flowers, I was very confident that they would put something wonderful together and they did. My family are still receiving compliments from friends regarding our wedding. If I could attach a picture I would!

Despite the unusual name, Hairy Mary's does a beautiful job. Our flowers were exquisite, and lasted throughout the day. My sister's bouquet dried beautifully and is on display in her home. Sad to say I lost mine, as we raced out the next morning to head to Italy. Everyone loved my bouquet - so many compliments! And the centerpieces were very elegant - EXACTLY what I wanted. We used them at breakfast the next day, and they were still perfect. As for flexibility, at the last moment we moved the ceremony from outside to inside which required a few changes to the floral decor, and Mark didn't skip a beat. The best thing was that I never had to think twice, I knew he would handle everything perfectly. There was also an exceptional arrangement in the middle of the fountain at Holly Hedge - I wish I could attach a photo! They aren't inexpensive, but Mark knows how to work within your budget - a key element for any vendor. They are worth it!

WOW!! I was blown away by the stunning floral arrangements that Mark Bryan put together for my wedding. He is so amazingly talented!! I absolutely LOVED my bouquet, the centerpieces, the cake flowers, the fountain arrangement, EVERYTHING! The flowers made the ceremony and reception so incredibly romantic - they absolutely transformed what was already a beautiful setting into something out of a fairy tale! I loved the flowers so much that it still makes me sad to think that I had to leave them all behind when we left for the honeymoon...I wish I could have enjoyed them longer. Mark worked with me well in advance to determine the "mood" I was going for, the type of flowers that would be in season (as to not blow my budget), my likes and dislikes, and was ALWAYS available to answer my questions. I would recommend Mark and the entire staff at Hairy Mary's to anyone looking for a great florist.

Mark was truly a pleasure to work with. He spent a lot of time listening to my ideas for our floral arrangements and made some really wonderful suggestions about what would look good in our venue space as well as where we could save money.
He actually grows his own succulents and tries to use local vendors or vendors that he knows very well, which is something I really like to see.
Everyone raved about our florals at the wedding. He did an amazing job fulfilling everything we had discussed. I also love that he sent me a sneak peak as he was putting together the centerpieces and bouquets, it really helped confirm that everything was going to come together perfectly.

Mark Bryan was fantastic. When I booked my photgrapher she recommended Mark. He also happened to be one of the top preferred vendors at my venue. So it was a no brainer. He listeded to everything I envisioned and nailed it. Most of our communication was through email but he saw my vision after our first meeting. I believe I went to Marks place of business twice, which by the way is beautiful to work with him on the color scheme When I showed him the bridesmaids colors and my dress he knew exactly what to do and assembled stuff right there for me to get a good idea. I pretty much gave him artistic freedom to create what he thought best when I told him the look I was going for and what my favorite flower was. I had a little peacock theme going but I didn't want to go crazy with it and he added just the right amount of touches here and there. He has so many options for cernterpieces outside your normal Tall Vases. I used these great trees that had bunches of flowers on them and candles hanging from the branches. I never saw anything like them before. I still get compliments on them to this day. I love looking back at the pictures of everything that Mark created for me for my wedding. I would highly recommend Mark and I hope I have the opportunity to use him again in the future

Wedding flowers were very important to me because I felt that it was that final touch that could really make or break our overall vision.

When we first met with Mark, we knew he was more than capable of creating our vision. Our aesthetic was very clean and modern. Mark took out a pencil and paper and begin sketching what we had said that we wanted- and sure enough, he got it right on the first try.

I worked closely with Mark and showed him some tears from magazine that really inspired me. When it got to the day of the wedding- everything was just as I had hoped for, if not more beautiful.

I believe that Hairy Mary's team took all my ideas and created a beautiful and personal masterpiece which really set our wedding apart and showed our personality.

I highly recommend Hairy Mary's to anyone with such a vision- because they will do a fantastic job at delivering.

Thank you both Mark and Darlene for working with us for the months leading up, and always being available for input and suggestions. We absolutely loved the way everything came out- I was especially in love with my bridal bouquet, which Darlene advise, had come over from Holland. What an amazing and unique touch.

Thank you both again,
Elizabeth + Brandon

I felt that I wanted to just worry about my dress and having a good time at my wedding, so I chose experienced vendors whom I could trust to just handle everything.

We absolutely loved Mark! We were married at HollyHedge Estates and he comes highly recommended. It helped that he knew our venue inside and out. We did a consultation with Mark and I came armed with a dozen photos. He knew exactly how to bring my vision to life. I went and ordered a bunch of vases myself (I knew I wanted mercury glass) and when they turned out to be too small for a centerpiece Mark came up with a genius idea to make it more substantial by repeating the flowers used on our escort card display as a base. He had so many ideas it was just wonderful working with him. He is not cheap but we, in no way, felt like he was cheating us. He even gave suggestions of in-season flowers to reduce costs. I highly recommend Mark Bryan Designs!

Mark was our dream florist! He listened to what we wanted and made it all come true. He suggested and tweaked things based on what we said we liked and was just overall a pleasure to work with. He even asked an employee to drive 30 minutes to help us get sparklers the week of the wedding! His hours are slightly difficult if you aren't available during the day since the location is far, but his store and grounds are worth getting there. Overall we were very pleased.

The quality of work you get when you book Mary Bryan Designs is amazing. We booked him for our wedding decor and flowers and thought it was absolutely beautiful. The only critiques I have are in regards to communication. When I would speak with Mark he knew what I was saying and what I wanted immediately. He would then pass the info off to someone to write/edit the contract. The contract was edited many, many times due to the fact that it would not reflect what we had discussed on the phone; and since it says if its not in the contract you don't get it on the wedding day I was very nervous about this. The decor for our wedding included many candles and lanterns. In our initial meeting we had discussed changing out the smaller candles on the candelabras for tapered candles, and this was not done. In the lanterns provided, while we did discuss the fact that the candles did not need to be brand new, I would expect that all the lanterns at least have a candle or a usable candle inside, and some did not. Overall, I am pleased with what was provided. He was there bright and early and extremely efficient in setting up.

Mark Bryan Designs responded with the following comments:

Hello Kristin and thank you for the review and constructive criticism. Please know that we revise the contract each and every time there is a change. Your wedding was treated with the same care as our larger weddings and required many changes at your request. At times, there were perhaps some differences in what you were expecting spelled out and how we typically present it on the contract. We did everything we could to make it exactly as it should be for your comfort. I do believe it was as detailed as it could be. As for the candelabras and taper candles, the contract did not specify taper candles so I used an assortment of our premium crackled votive cups with candles as well as assorted pillar candles. I did not use taper candles as they are very likely to drip and I did not want any issue with wax on your expensive premium linens. Since it was warm, I knew that the ventilation system would be on and there would be an issue. As for the coach lamps used for the ceremony, they were personally inspected to make sure the candles were adequate for the time line needed for the ceremony. I do hope you enjoyed the additional coach lamps I left as a gesture of thanks for your business.

It was a special treat getting to see you and your sister the day of the wedding and it was very nice to hear how happy you were that day and how everything exceeded your expectations.. It is too bad we did not have time to chat longer so I could have learned about these minor issues as I could have explained my decisions and or made changes to fine tune everything.

Please know that we are so thankful for your business and will take your ideas and use them as we work with other clients.

Best to you both!

Hiring Hairy Mary's was the biggest mistake we made in wedding planning. Flowers we contracted for and paid for were never delivered- instead we got arrangements made with cheap looking roses (when we had specifically stated we did not want any roses). On our wedding day, the owner of this business was unprofessional and really awful to deal with when we asked him why we had none of the flowers we had agreed to in our contract were there and instead we had flowers that looked wilted and old. He got very defensive and told us he had never had any complaints. After our experience with him, I find that very difficult, if not impossible to believe. Regardless, instead of trying to fix the arrangements, he simply left. It was a typical "bait and switch"- we paid for peonies and tulips and got leftover old roses.

You are way better off buying flowers at the nearest grocery store than from Hairy Mary's. Stay as far away as possible. There are a ton of other florists in the area- go with any one of those before you even think of hiring Hairy Mary's.

****UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 2009****

Future Brides and Grooms,
As you can see by Mr. Bryan's very defensive and accusatory response, he has a very bad temper and does not take criticism well. In fact, I was an extremely happy bride, and I was thrilled with every other vendor that I dealt with (please see my additional reviews). When Mr. Bryan showed up with literally half dead roses, I was visibly upset. Instead of trying to remedy the problem, Mr. Bryan got extremely defensive and unhelpful. I could not believe he was the same nice accommodating man I had dealt with planning the wedding. If you would like to message me, I would be happy to send you pictures of our flowers, half dead, and with the oasis (the green stuff you stick the flowers in) showing. To be honest, I wrote this review awhile ago, and I would have been happy to never think of or hear from Hairy Mary's again. Unfortunately, Mr. Bryan has taken to harassing me on this website and posting nasty messages on my account, which I then receive notice of via email. I was not going to respond, but if I were planning a wedding, I know I would not want a person like this involved, and I felt compelled to warn people. Here is what he has said:

I am not sure, but it also appears that the other two messages on my page were from Mr. Bryan as well, but using aliases. Ladies who have had good experiences with Hairy Mary's, I am very happy for you, and I am glad you did not receive the same treatment or dead flowers I did. Future brides, I wouldn't risk it. Regardless of the quality of flowers, do you really want to be getting mean messages from your florist asking if your marriage lasted a year or be called a "bridezilla" a year and a half after your wedding? There are lots of other florists out there who have a much higher standard of customer service and would never dream of treating any client in this fashion.

Ladies who have had good experiences with Hairy Mary's, I am very happy for you, and I am glad you did not receive the same treatment or dead flowers I did. Future brides, I wouldn't risk it. Regardless of the quality of flowers, do you really want to be getting mean messages from your florist asking if your marriage lasted a year or be called a "bridezilla" a year and a half after your wedding? There are lots of other florists out there who have a much higher standard of customer service and would never dream of treating any client in this fashion.

Mark Bryan Designs responded with the following comments:

As you can see from all the other responses, this woman is unreasonable and unhappy for other reasons than the flowers we provided. The floral work we created was amazing and prompted many calls and several bookings. Even her future inlaws were amazed at our work and embarassed over her actions the day of her wedding. The groom's parents were gracious and happy and were very upset at how she treated us...They were first hand observers. They chalked it up to the horrible rain we were having which was requiring the wedding to be inside. Others factors were at play here besides the weather and I was not part of that.<BR><BR>10/13/2009<BR><BR>I wish to continue to dispute this horrific client. I am so over her and the continued harrassment. I have been reviewing her account and all the negative energy she put out and I am finished with her and think that her comments and review should be removed immediatly. We created an amazing wedding for Hillary. Her photos are in our portfolio. I am amazed that she had time to make nasty reviews and submit multiple harrassing letters to the Better Business Bureau and to me. We did everything to help her including providing flowers to match her request when she did not follow her contract terms and did not even pay us until 5/29/08....three days before her wedding. Our terms are payment in full 15 days prior to the event. She clearly did not follow the terms of our signed contract and she should have been greatful that any flowers were available to match her requirements!!! If we do not have payment in full 15 days prior to the event, we do not order flowers in a timely fashion and do not guarantee anything more than color selection. This woman is clearly off her mark here in saying anything negative. She got very nasty toward all of us the day of the wedding and created a scene that was beyond compare. The words that came out of her mouth were verbally abbussive and I should have just taken the flowers and left. I must let everyone know that she never refused the flowers and did not ask us to remove them. She did not ask for the roses to be removed (I asked her) but, she suggested that we add more hydrangea and peony. We gladly added both to all centerpieces and large arrangements. We offered to add other items to make her day more memorable including candle stands to brighten a very dreary day...All of this was refused even though it was at no charge. Following the event, there was not one flower left as guests took all of them home...nothing was returned or disputed the day after when I returned to pick up my rental items.(for which there was no charge). I saw Hillary the day after her event and she did not say anything regarding the flowers. I did see her family and they were thankful for what we had created. As for her continued reviews, I think she needs to move on and realize that she herself needs to take some of the burden on this one. I made the fatal mistake of doing her wedding when she did not follow the terms of our contract. I should have told her that we could not guarantee any flowers when payment is not made as per the terms of the signed contract. I have now learned that there is no guarantee on any flower type being provided when payment is not made as per our contract. Thanks to all for understanding this one....One last item...I see Hillary is thinking I made other comments on her site posing as other brides...Not true.
